Sarri Concerned Over Willian Absence

Adjust Comment Print

I don't know the situation in this moment.

The Spaniard, whose side will now face Manchester City in the Community Shield game at Wembley on Sunday, said: "It's a different way".

"We had our first training on 16 July". Of course (we want to keep them).

Sarri was appointed as the latest man to take the managerial hotseat at Chelsea, replacing fellow Italian Antonio Conte, who was finally sacked last month after several months of speculation. "We pressed together, recovered the ball very quickly and play with very good possession to create chances, and this is the way for us for the future".

Aside from Willian, English midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek has also returned early from his World Cup holiday but there are no signs of Belgian trio Eden Hazard, Michy Batshuayi and Thibaut Courtois cutting short their vacation.

'I only let him go once he had signed a contract which stated he would not be allowed to sign any of our players - apart from Jorginho, ' De Laurentiis said of Sarri, according to the London Evening Standard. I want to speak to him.

This tension between the manager and the player could see him leave the club, with Jose Mourinho keen on adding him to his squad.

"He has a fantastic team, fantastic players and squad - I think he has conditions to do good work".

The 17-year-old made his senior competitive debut for Chelsea last season in a 3-0 FA Cup victory over Newcastle United at Stamford Bridge, before making his Premier League debut in a 3-0 home defeat to Bournemouth.
